I have one of these (platinum), great boards! i know its been like a year since this things been out, so can anyone tell me if there is an am2+ DDR2 board what trumps this one? and prefably a GX, not fx since i dont really think im going xfire but if i do id like 16x16 which is the only thing this board lacks, thanks :)

Then you will have installed a graphics card onto your motherboard that is capable of sending a video signal to your monitor thus allowing you to functionally use your computer.


If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day
